UAF is committed to supporting women, trans, and nonbinary activists on the ground in and surrounding Ukraine by providing flexible funding and security support. We are responding to requests from groups and individuals seeking:
Support with emergency evacuations and relocations;
Legal, financial, and medical support;
Security and disaster survival training;
Increasing shelter capacities for children, women, and all other civilians;
Access to alternative communication channels, mobile internet, power banks, VPNs, proxy, spare phones, and tablets.
We stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine who are under attack. We stand ready to support the movements of the women and LGBTQI+ people in Ukraine who have always been under attack. We ask that you support us to meet the needs and challenges of this crisis.
Please donate today.
We thank you for standing with us to support our movement partners in Ukraine.
Urgent Action Fund for Women's Human Rights is a global women's fund that protects, strengthens and sustains women and transgender human rights defenders at critical moments. We intervene quickly when activists are poised to make great gains or face serious threats to their lives and work. We use online, text and mobile funding applications to respond to requests from women's human rights defenders within 72 hours and have funds on the ground within 1-7 days.
Urgent Action Fund builds the resilience of women's rights and LGBT rights movements in three ways: (1) rapid response grantmaking; (2) advocacy and alliance building; (3) global consortium of Urgent Action Sister Funds. Since its founding, Urgent Action Fund has awarded more than 1,700 rapid response grants, totaling more than $7 million, to advance women's and LGBTQ human rights in 110 countries worldwide.
We are a nonprofit too. Donate to Giving Compass to help us guide donors toward practices that advance equity.
